The Random Comic Strip

Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

My Last Meme

My thanks to The Jules for laying this on me. He noted that there was no number 10 so I added it because I am a mild OCD type and needed the symmetry. I am not sure what the answers say about me and I am pretty sure I don't want to know...

(appended: This is a "one word" meme)

1. Where is your cell phone? Bureau
2. Where is your significant other? Heart
3. Your hair color? Graying
4. Your mother? Spirit
5. Your father? Memory
6. Your favorite thing? Time

31. Last time you cried? *

I am supposed to inflict this on 5 others. Since I think these things should be completely voluntary, I am going to allow you to pick yourselves. Or, better yet, ask your readers to select you.

* The night I had to authorize the removal of my father from the ventilator machine. It cannot be put in one word.

Douglas, you are a good sport. Having dobbed you in it myself and now you've been hit again by one of my taggees, I feel you have deserved the honour of yet another award, that was bestowed upon me in the small hours. Check out Tomus in about an hour to ballar.

Douglas said...

Neo, you are being graded (#3). Sorry.

AV, I suspect the award is for "Most Easily Duped" but I will still accept it.

Michael said...

Witty and entertaining. Three cheers for Cyn-opti-mism! And very touching Numbers 4, 5, 8, 20 and 31.

Michael.

Teal? Your favourite colour is a duck?

Sorry Douglas, I didn't realise you'd been victimated by AV before.

My definition of ugliness? Vainty.

Douglas said...

Jules, in a sense.

"Teal, also called teal blue, is equal parts blue and green. The color gets its name from the fact that it surrounds the eyes of the common teal, a member of the duck family."

I am the youngest of my parents' children, I am used to being victimized.

Michael: Thanks
